libyan city of benghazi. militants have been tied to security throughout the country and they could be tied to the killing of chris stevens. folks here have had enough. the compound was ransacked. militia members were killed. they are going for illegitimate and abandon their bases by tuesday. some are skeptical that this will happen but still, trouble some groups, have left problems in two different cities. and the events could be seen by the public backed by the government wreaking their own revenge for the killing of stevens and three americans. maybe it's a good thing because what we understand from our discussions with officials here in benghazi the probe in the killing is going know where fast. we are told by officials they have nothing knew to report that. and we're told the f.b.i. team to come in to investigate the killing remains here in tripoli. according to all reports they have not reached benghazi amidst new concerns in tampering with the crime scene in benghazi and new concerns that the bad guys might be getting away. this militia crackdown means that the militants, pos

her about the attack on the american consulate in benghazi and this is what she said. >> the best information we have federal is that it was not a preplanned attack. it was a spontanous reaction to what happened in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> chris: why did ambassador rice give bad information. >> guest: at the point she gave that answer is the answer show gave and she has far more information than i do. we have learned more and as the investigation continues, i anticipate we will continue to learn more facts about the awful assassination and murder of our great ambassador in libya. you saw the white house say it was a terror attack and no one wants to get to the bottom of this more than the president and secretary of state so that we can protect our missions and consulate throughout the world and remain engaged. >> chris: i specifically asked the ambassador of libya who was saying it was preplanned. i specifically asked her about al-qaida that said it was revenge for killing the top al-qaida leader. mrs. rice said it was a spontanous attack that was not preplanned and
certainty around libya and more than a week after the killing inside the u.s. consulate in benghazi, we know less than we were so sure of the day it happened. at the time u.s. officials indicated there was no intelligence indicating a specific threat that may be technically true, but there is word now that days before the attack there were warnings about insufficient security in benghazi and the potential for an attack. it leads to questions. >> i don't know how you argue we weren't caught flat-footed. they stormed our consulate, were successful in that and killed our ambassador and three other employees. that is being caught flat-footed. >> as well, the administration's early line was that the attack was not premeditated. that it was the spontaneous work of a handful of people who used a broader protest over an anti-muslim movie as cover to murder the americans. it turn out maybe there wasn't even a broader protest. we are still unsure. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four
in benghazi. here is what she said. >> the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned premeditated attack. that what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence much the video. >> chris: why did ambassador rice give the american people bad information? >> the best information we had at point at which she gave that answer is the answer that she gave. ambassador rice has access to far more intelligence data than i do any more. i would say this as we have learned more and as this investigation continues i anticipate we will continue to learn more facts about the awful asas assassination and mr of our great ambassador are in libya. you saw the white house say this was a terror attack and nobody wants to get to the bottom of this more than the president and the secretary of state so that we can protect our missions and our consulates throughout the world and remain engaged. >> chris: i specifically last sunday asked ambassador rice about the president of libya who w
benghazi being attacked and not about the pocketbook issues that people over their breakfast tables every morning talk about how they have to meet the challenge challenges. >> well, the argument could be made after the attack in benghazi, perhaps governor romney could have used that as a opportunity to make a swoo sweeping declaration of his foreign policy. >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that was two weeks ago. >> well, look, we can look back and make judgments on that and also make judgments on how president obama handled that. in the middle of what should have been a fog of intelligence information coming in, they come out to make unequivocal statements of how an attack on 9/111 had nothing to do with al qae qaeda, and put it this way, it is something that if they weren't simple incompetence, it is simple disingenuously. >> and you are not going to acknowledge that the romney campaign may have fumbled it a little bit as well. >> look, i think that we now know that both sides would have liked to have handle it differently, but what is important to note there is that, yes, governor romney has
had a rough week because of the benghazi incident in which he was deemed by most people, including many on his own side, to have jumped in with a critical statement of the president really without knowing all the facts and turning it into a political football when most people thought that was the wrong thing to do. >> i agree. >> as an american politician at that time. >> absolutely. when our country is attacked in any way, shape or form, we need to pull together, come together, not separate at that point. i mean, you know what i would do over there? i would do what the pinnacle of the republican party, the hero, whatever of modern day, ronald reagan did. do you recall when back in the '80s the barracks in lebanon was hit and over 200 marines were killed? did ronald reagan go to war? no. he got us the hell out of there. and that's where i stand on this. if these people don't want us over there, let's close our embassies. i stand with ron paul. let's get rid of foreign aid altogether, because, as ron paul put it, the definition of "foreign aid," that's taking from america's poor and
had a rough week because of the benghazi incident in which he was deemed by most people including many on his side to have jumped in with a critical segment of the president without really knowing all of the facts and turning it into a political football when most people thought it was the wrong thing to be doing. >> oh, i agree. as an american politician at that time. >> oh, absolutely, when our country is attacked in any shape or form we need to pull together and come together and not separate at that point. you want to know what i would do over there? i would do what the pinkel of the modern day ronald reagan would do? you recall in the '80s when the barracks were hit and over 200 marines were killed? did ronald reagan go to war? no. he got us the hell out of there. if they don't want us over there, then close the embassies and i stand with ron paul, get rid of the foreign aid altogether, because as ron paul put it, the definition of foreign aid is taking from america's poor and giving to another country's rich. >> well, wait a minute -- >> wait a minute. >> it is my show. wait a mi
, machetes, the angry libyans kicked al sharia out of its benghazi headquarters and chased fighters from the bays. what's the significance of what happened over the weekend in libya to the situation that we're trying to come to terms with and react to, the killing of the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens, and the attack on our consulate in benghazi? guest: there are really two points we should take away from what's going on in libya. the first is the response to the libyan government and in this case the libyan people actually attacking the terroristis are really quite encouraging, very different from the egyptian response, of course, again. the egyptian government did not denounce the attacks until a couple of days later when it was under pressure, the ruling party called for new protests in libya, very different, immediate denunciation of the attacks, the need to step up the deal esp confrontation with militants. but the second thing we have to remember about libya, this is still an instance in which a different kind of, you know, unofficial response, that is, you know, to put it mildly,
